As the guys continue on their way to Texas, this Road Trip degenerates into a slow-moving game of connect-the-gross-outs.

Although lively at times, the proceedings are far too perfunctory to generate a 'can-you-top-this' quality. The result is a film that knows some of the words, but not the music.

Multiplexes should be thronged with howling, high-fiving young men deep into summer.

Road Trip is nothing more than a series of sight gags and put-downs. It's often funny, but it never has anything smart to say.

The movie is sloppily made, but there's almost a sly charm to the sloppiness, and the unevenness of the filmmaking doesn't detract from the picture's most obvious laughs.

Road Trip occasionally wills itself to rude, crude life. But most of the time it's pretty limp.

Still, although the subject matter is sophomoric it has enough of a plot and key performances to humor more sophisticated moviegoers too.

Road Trip rides the wave of popularity for base, politically incorrect, outrageous humor.

On the whole it works because its over-the-top humor is supported by the filmmakers' ability to view life with a clear-eyed lack of sentimentality.

It's no masterpiece, you understand, but it doesn't count on the raging hormones of its audience to do all of its work.

The movie takes a slice out of the American Pie recipe book by at least making the final screen product funnier than the trailer.

Road Trip is broadly amusing with a few bright spots. But those can't cover up the major gaps in storytelling, characterization and laughs.

Road Trip may not be an ambitious film, but it doesn't lack for imagination, and the nasty edge of its comedy makes it refreshing.

As objectionable as its subject matter is, the most objectionable thing is that it's not funny.

As we all know, bad taste is timeless. And sometimes it can be so funny that you can't help laughing.

Road Trip takes a well-traveled highway, but the drivers know exactly what they're doing.

Road Trip ... celebrates the triumph of hedonistic righteousness in a world where it already rules.

Road Trip may not have the all-time-classic status of Animal House, but it's frequently as funny.

Road Trip is mellow and dirty, which is the wrong combination.

Road Trip is the best dumb party movie of the year; if that's what you've been craving, buckle up.

Scott and Green seem to be having the most fun, but the entire cast is energetic and the movie feeds on that enthusiasm.
